A friend of mine is getting married tomorrow (!!) and time was running out so I turned to my trusty embossed vellum for the elegant look. Love that look!! Since none of my friends are stampers [ugh], they'll never know how easy this was! (I was going to wait until the weekend to post this, but a couple of folks asked to see it, so in keeping with my new attitude about the blog, why not??) And, here's the inside: How I made this card: All supplies Stampin Up unless otherwise noted: I embossed cardstock vellum with the Textile Embossing Folder from SU, and using my Xyron, adhered it to Pretty in Pink cardstock. I also printed the names "Amy and Stuart" (the bride and groom) on the computer with the same vellum. I took a piece of Pretty in Pink cardstock and punched a rectangle out of it and then trimmed to form a frame. Threaded narrow white and pink organdy ribbon, non SU silver cording and a non SU heart charm that I picked up at AC Moore's this afternoon (the card really needed something else). After I was done with the card, I decided to add a little flourish from Carte Postale, so I masked the center of the card and stamped the flourish in the corner with Encore Silver pigment ink. The inside text is from Versatile Verses and the flower is also from Carte Postale. What I learned from making this card: Stamp the silver flourish first! Use a different, more script like font for the names. Otherwise, I learned that I can have a good time making a card and not worry about what other folks think about it. Hey, I'm trying, I'm trying.
